Accommodation - This delightful detached early Victorian era residence is set in the quiet village of Calton, positioned in Peak Park on the Staffordshire/Derbyshire border. Ideal for family living or even a holiday home, the property has been completely renovated by the current owners and has the perfect balance of character and contemporary features throughout. As well as stunning views across open countryside, the property also has its own detached barn which would make an excellent holiday let investment opportunity or ideal for an independent relative or family member.

On entering Manor House you are greeted with the welcoming reception hall with its impressive staircase and charming Minton tiled flooring. The sitting room and formal dining room are both accessed from the reception hall and both have delightful feature fireplaces, with the former benefitting from a log burner for those cold winter days. The property boasts high ceilings throughout and the Georgian windows to the front and side give a great feeling of space, as well as natural light and airiness.

The reception hall also leads through the centre of the property to the rear hall giving access to the very impressive, well-stocked, wine cellar before leading onto the study to one side and the kitchen/breakfast room to the other. The current owners have renovated the property throughout and the kitchen/breakfast room is no exception with the farmhouse style kitchen being a very sociable as well as modern and practical room. The Aga provides the main feature for this room and is complemented by light storage units with attractive granite work surfaces. The kitchen benefits from stylish tiled flooring throughout and dual aspect views to the rear garden.

The first floor, in keeping with the ground floor, maintains a spacious and light ambiance with its high ceilings and décor. The four bedrooms are all generous in size and are complemented by the two family bathrooms. There is also a further staircase giving access to the attic room which gives scope for further development.

Manor Barn provides detached annex accommodation, its situation separating the two gardens within the plot. Like the main property, Manor Barn has been extensively renovated and is full of charm. The annex has two bedrooms and two bathrooms with an open plan living and dining area. The glazed French doors give outstanding views across the rear garden and countryside beyond. An ideal holiday let.

Vendor Insight - “We were immediately taken by the imposing features of Manor House, as well as the space and layout of the rooms. Although we knew it would take a lot of work, we feel proud to have restored the property in keeping with its age and Georgian style and we managed to retain the original features where possible, including fireplaces and stairs,”

“We refurbished the whole house from top to bottom and perhaps the biggest change has been the barn conversion which is now a completely separate dwelling. It’s ideal for independent living as it benefits from its own patio area, two bedrooms, shower room, bathroom and living area, complete with a modern, fitted kitchen.”

“The south facing courtyard is a perfect suntrap which warms up beautifully during the day and there’s always something of interest happening in the paddock which has ornamental trees and a pond, as well as soft fruit bushes and a vegetable patch.”

“The farmhouse style kitchen is the hub of the house and it’s where everyone tends to congregate, no matter what the occasion. It has a lovely duel aspect with views over the garden and it’s the ideal room to catch up with friends or to enjoy a quiet coffee in the morning.”

“The location has been perfect as the village is off the main road with no through traffic. It’s very quiet and there are lots of rambling opportunities and walks to be enjoyed. The active village hall has various activities taking place throughout the year and there’s something for everyone to enjoy.”

“We like to retire to the study in the evening to watch television or just relax with a good book.”

“It’s always very peaceful and quiet, yet everything we need is easily accessible.”

“The house and garden are perfect for entertaining and we’ve hosted a 90th birthday party, as well as sports days and birthday parties in the paddock.”

“We will miss the convenience of the location. Although it’s very tranquil, we’re only 90 minutes away from London and the amenities in nearby Ashbourne and Leek.”

Outside - Manor House benefits from a traditional English garden, laid to lawn at the front and immediate rear of the main house, together with a terraced area adjacent to the front of the annex and further patio area to the south facing rear of the annex. The private rear gardens are extensive in size, south facing and enjoy uninterrupted views across the peak park and open countryside, offering something to enjoy all year round. There is also off road parking for numerous vehicles to the side of the plot.

Location - Situated in the Peak Park, the village of Calton is positioned in North Staffordshire close to the Derbyshire border. The village lies within easy reach of the popular market towns of Ashbourne and Leek as well as Uttoxeter. Whilst enjoying a quiet location there are easy trunk roads within a short distance which give access to Manchester, Birmingham and East Midlands Airport.
